The beauty of a tassel is in its movement and this cord flows beautifully when made into a tassel. It is thin, almost thread like but strong enough to add beads to it. Use multiple strands of it for kumihimo and then separate those strands into a beautiful tassel at the end of your braid.
Cord is 2ply: (undividable) measures approximately .1mm, made from nylon. It does not come in pre-made ropes (multiple strands lightly twisted together) so when you use it for kumihimo you make your own ropes. Approximately 10 strands makes a 1mm rope. 20 strands makes a 2mm rope.. etc
